The Terrible Podcast – Talking Steelers Dolphins Recap, Ben Roethlisberger Injury, Joey Porter & More

Season 7, Episode 65 of The Terrible Podcast is now up and in this Monday show, David Todd and I get right to recapping the Pittsburgh Steelers decisive Wild Card win over the Miami Dolphins.

We look at what the Steelers did right and wrong on both sides of the football during Sunday’s game in addition to pointing out several key induvial performances that took place.

After going over who didn’t play Sunday, David and I discuss Steelers tight end Ladarius Green and his ongoing issue with his concussion. We talk about whether or not we would still sign Green knowing what we know right now.

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was injured late in Sunday’s game against the Dolphins so we of course discuss the decision made by head coach Mike Tomlin to still have him in the game at point being as the game was already decided.

We make sure to discuss the hit on Dolphins quarterback Matt Moore by Steelers linebacker Bud Dupree.

The Steelers special teams units were miserable again on Sunday so with that, we discuss how that could be a big problem next Sunday in the Divisional Round game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Steelers linebackers coach Joey Porter got himself into some trouble with the police well after the game was over so David and I make sure to discuss that topic.

As always, several other smaller talking points are mixed in throughout the show that are not highlighted here in this post.

    Thank God you guys are seeing reason about keeping the guys out there. Do you know how many people have been defending Tomlins decision to keep the starters in. Sheesh.

  • ND_Steel

    Great podcast as always, thanks and keep up the great work!

    A lot of people don’t remember the Raider game with Steelers up 28-14 with 5 minutes left in game. It was a great Steelers defense but snake Stabler leads to the Raiders to 17 points in those last 5 minutes to win the game 31-28. Ben’s penultimate play was at 4:34 left too play. Absolutely he should have been in there.

    Nobody is questioning Mike McCarthy for having Aaron Rogers throwing hail Mary’s when they had a larger lead.

    Justin Gilbert takes one to the house to save Danny Smith’s job this weekend. Book it.

  • Phil Brenneman II

    Nobody here is questioning it because nobody cares about the Packers. McCarthy being an idiot isn’t a good defense of Tomlin.

    No way our stars should have been in the game that late. We can debate exactly when they come out, but with that lead, the way we dominated the game, the experience of our backups, and whatever other factors we can throw out, it was a terrible decision by Tomlin and we just have to hope it doesn’t cost us.

    I mean think about it. Lets just say for example this weekend we lose to the Chiefs and that loss comes with bad play from Ben because he is hobbled. We can directly link that back to Tomlin. But will his defenders care? Not really. They will just keep pointing out how he has never had a losing record.

    I will continue to quote DT because I think he is 100% right. You have to judge the process just as much as you do the results. We got the win, but we did some poor things getting to that win.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    I think DT is wrong on this too. That last drive started with 6 minutes left in game. As the Raiders taught the Steelers long ago; even the best defense can give up 3 scores in less than 5 minutes.

    There were of course mistakes made in the game; but having your starting quarterback in there when the outcome of the game is still not decided is not one of them.

  • Phil Brenneman II

    The outcome of the game was pretty much decided in the the first quarter, so no. That is just wrong.

    Is anything possible? Sure. An elephant MIGHT have charged on the field, but it sure wasn’t likely.

    And there is a very easy counter to your argument. We take Ben out, the offense sputters (it had already sputtered even with him in there btw) and the Dolphins score a TD. Then you could make an argument for bringing him back in to keep the game out of reach. But it was already out of reach and everyone knew it minus the people trying to defend Tomlin.

  • Beaver Falls Hosiery

    Then Tomlin should have pulled Ben after the first quarter if the game was decided by then;)

  • Dorian James

    Love the Kevin Greene idea Dave

  • Phil Brenneman II

    Lol, that would have been a bit extreme.
